Self Love is the Best Love…

Self love. What is self love, really? We hear about it, we see campaigns about it; but do we really grasp it? In a world where so much of the population is fake and becoming more fake by the day, we stray further and further away from who we really are as people. We are so “selfie” obsessed (myself included), but do we really LOVE ourselves?

Today’s post isn’t all that long, it’s really thoughts that were going through my mind and I hoped that someone, anyone, could benefit from them. I am not the beauty standard. I am not 5″11′. I am not a size 00-2. I do not have a chiseled face of the gods. I do not have the perfect nose. For a long time, those things really bothered me.

Instead, my boobs are more than a handful. My waist is not 23″ around (far from it). I am 5″7′. My thighs would give thunder a run for it’s money. My face is round. Parts of my skin are uneven in color. I have a few tiger stripes, because who calls them stretch marks anymore!? So, it’s funny. A lot of the things that I wanted to change about myself, are now the things that I really like best. Don’t get me wrong, I believe I have improvements to make, but regardless I love myself. The love I have for myself is beyond the surface.

I am trying to get back on the road of health (gym and proper eating). I won’t lie, it is really hard for me. For the last few months I haven’t really looked in the mirror without clothing. Going straight from my showers to my room, not allowing myself to look at my body in the mirror. I am quick to judge, always over critical about myself. Today, I decided to get in front of the camera and take some pictures that showed “some skin”. It’s not a lot, but it is a start. There is one picture in particular that I was afraid to post. It shows my chunky monkey tummy, but oddly enough, it was my favorite picture of the bunch.

I encourage every girl and guy to embrace themselves. The thing that you dislike the most about yourself, start saying you love it. The power of the mind is such an incredible thing. Let’s fade away from the fake and artificial and get back to the love that we once had for ourselves that is rooted so deep, under all of the dislikes. At the end of the day, you have to be good with YOU. Give a big ol’ hair flip to anyone else who has anything negative to say. Because really, they’re haters anyway 😉



What I Wore||Mesh on Mesh on Mesh on Mesh…


On today’s edition of “What I Wore”, I prove that sometimes; I dress like a girl. I’m also proving that a messy background can make for a super cool backdrop. {Let’s roll with that}. I LOVE this mesh number. I wore it for my shoot last week and then decided to wear it out over the weekend as well, because {clearly} I couldn’t get enough of it. Mesh is a pretty big deal right now in the world of fashion. I love that the mesh dress shows just enough, while still being sexy and classy. Shop this look below. Look even further to find the makeup {deets} ||
